Conan the Adventurer Cartoon Series?!
The description, unsurprisingly, doesn't look like it bears all that much resemblance to Howard's creation, other than the names. Conan supposedly rides a horse named Thunder and adventures with Jezmine, Snagg, Needle, Greywolf and Zula on a "quest to rescue Conan’s family from an evil spell cast by the Serpent Man wizard Wrath-Amon." He's also armed with a sword forged from "star-metal."
Since I didn't grow up with this one, like I did with Thundarr, I don't think the nostalgia factor is going to win out and cause me to get this. But, I am still a little intrigued. I wouldn't mind checking it out via Netflix streaming or something like that.
Anybody else out there hear of this? I'm shocked that in all the time I've spent reading OSR blogs and the absolute love for all things Conan that many bloggers rave about, somehow I've never seen anybody talking about this.
